Even though I know I shouldn't I really got my hopes up when she was leading 2-0 in the third, seemed like the match had tipped over to her. Well, I guess not...

Re: Grass Season 2013 - Getting ready for Wimbledon.

I was just about to post what a brilliant draw that is until I looked closer seeing Pironkova awaiting her in R2.

On the other hand the Bulgarian is just awful at the moment only having won a total of 3 matches this year (2 of them in the 1st tournament). I don't know what to think about that.

Re: Grass Season 2013 - Getting ready for Wimbledon.

She might have a chance with Pironkova, but she'll be crushed by Jovanovski if she gets that far. That girl is gonna be soooo top 5 player once she gets her priorities right.

Re: Grass Season 2013 - Getting ready for Wimbledon.

Well, Sorana lost first round her last year, and this year she gets a BYE, so automatic points, whatever happens with Pironkova!

BARBIE
is coming for your towel, too.

I think she only gets 1st round loser points if she loses after a 1st round bye.

Gets Pironkova, who looks to be in GOAT mode

Plus Sori lost to her on clay, so not expecting a win here Maybe she'll surprise me!

Re: Grass Season 2013 - Getting ready for Wimbledon.

I'd be very surprised if Sorana wins this match.
